David Schofield, a pianist from Cheshire, UK, had the concept of uniting entertainers he has shared the stage with on cruise lines worldwide. Together with his agent, David and Dominique Bennett brought together over 40 entertainers from 15 countries to spread an important message of being thankful during the Covid 19 Pandemic. A collection of star-studded performers have recorded from their homes across the globe in an emotional single and music video to help raise money for the World Health Organisation Covid-19 Response Fund
Performers include Attraction (Winners of Britain’s Got Talent), Marisha Wallace (Dreamgirls, Waitress, Aladdin, Hairspray – West End / Broadway / Movie), West End Group – The Barricade Boys, Duo Destiny (Winners of Poland’s Got Talent) and Hector Ruiz (The Illusionists: Broadway and Le Plus Grand Cabaret du Monde).
All the performers featured on the release share the same agent, Barry Ball Artists, a premier management company based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Barry Ball Artists is one of the largest cruise line agencies in the world, an industry that has been hard hit by the outbreak.
David Schofield (Pianist and Producer) –
“Each and everyone of us, at some point in our lives, take things for granted. For me, this pandemic has highlighted this more than ever before. The lyrics of this song share one very important message, to be grateful and thankful for everything we have.”
Dominique Bennett (Vice President of BBA and Producer)
“Bringing some of our BBA artists together for this project has been an inspiration. Coming from all over the world, they share one link: stages of theatres at sea. It is a true example of global unity and most of all, hope.”
